Sorry to post here sir but something I read found interesting.
solar system with 5 Earth-sized planets dicovered



LONDON: British scientists have discovered five Earth-sized planets around a distant star in the Milky Way galaxy leading to a possibility of finding life out there.

Led by University of Birmingham, astero-seismologists have discovered a solar system with five Earth-sized planets dating back to the dawn of the Galaxy.

Thanks to the Nasa Kepler mission, the scientists announced on Tuesday the observation of a Sun-like star (Kepler-444) hosting five planets with sizes between Mercury and Venus.

Kepler-444 was formed 11.2 billion years ago, when the Universe was less than 20% its current age. This is the oldest known system of terrestrial-sized planets in our Galaxy — 2 and a half times older than the Earth.

The team carried out the research using astero-seismology — listening to the natural resonances of the host star which are caused by sound trapped within it. These oscillations lead to miniscule changes or pulses in its brightness which allow the researchers to measure its diameter, mass and age. The planets were then detected from the dimming that occurs when the planets transited, or passed across, the stellar disc. This fractional fading in the intensity of the light received from the star enables scientists to accurately measure the size of the planets relative to the size of the star.

Dr Tiago Campante from the University of Birmingham's School of Physics and Astronomy who led the research said, "There are far-reaching implications for this discovery. We now know that Earth-sized planets have formed throughout most of the Universe's 13.8 billion-year-history, which could provide scope for the existence of ancient life in the Galaxy. By the time the Earth formed, the planets in this system were already older than our planet is today. This discovery may now help to pinpoint the beginning of what we might call the era of planet formation."

Professor Bill Chaplin from the University who has been leading the team studying solar-type stars using astero-seismology for the Kepler Mission said, "The first discoveries of exoplanets around other Sun-like stars in our Galaxy have fuelled efforts to find other worlds like Earth and other terrestrial planets outside our Solar System. We are now getting first glimpses of the variety of Galactic environments conducive to the formation of these small worlds. As a result, the path towards a more complete understanding of early planet formation in the Galaxy is now unfolding before us."
